Show 92  Dennis Prager interviews the author of The Forgotten Man  A new history of the Great Depression by Amity Shlaes. From the book jacket- In The Forgotten Man, Amity Shlaes, one of the nation's most respected economic commentators, offers a reinterpretation of the Great Depression. Shlaes also traces the mounting agony of the New Dealers themselves as they discovered their errors. She shows how both Presidents Hoover and Roosevelt failed to understand the prosperity of the 1920s and heaped massive burdens on the country that more than offset the benefit of New Deal programs. The real question about the Depression, she argues, is not whether

Roosevelt ended it with World War II. It is why the Depression lasted so long. From 1929 to 1940, federal intervention helped to make the Depression great - in part by forgetting the men and women who sought to help one another.
